Local radio and TV personality Ralph Story narrates this tale (two tales really. MORE Things That Aren't Here Anymore is like part two) of things that used to be in Los Angeles and aren't here anymore. Like the Angel's Flight trolley, the Brown Derby restaurant, car hops, Schwab's Pharmacy, Helm's bakeries, Lion Country Safari, the Spruce Goose, the Coconut Grove, etc., etc.. Mention is made also of old TV shows like Sheriff John and Hobo Kelly. It runs now and again on the local PBS station, KCET. I'm not sure if it's shown nationwide. I presume not.
While most of the tale is told by Story, there are also people who remember those old days and give their thoughts on some of the old landmarks. It's big fun to see and remember yesteryear, but I'm not sure how fun you would find it if you hadn't grown up there.
Sadly, since 2006, Ralph Story isn't here anymore either.
